Musto and the Prince’s Countryside Fund
Visit princescountrysidefund.org.uk to find out how you can get involved and read how their ambassadors Phil Vickery – himself the son of a Cornish farmer – and Blur cheese-maker Alex James have been busy spreading the message along with HRH The Prince of Wales.
HRH The Prince of Wales visited beneficiaries of The Prince’s Countryside Fund in a visit to Cumbria earlier this month. Over £250,000 has been donated to the region and five projects from Cumbria and Yorkshire met Prince Charles to explain how they had been helped. Many of the projects are specifically for young people and include two hill farming apprenticeship schemes where apprentices are employed working on a variety of different farms to improve their knowledge and skill base.
Victoria Elms, Programme Manager for the Fund said “The day gave them the chance to explain to Prince Charles how the opportunity to join The Countryside Fund’s Agricultural Apprenticeship scheme had provided them with employment and training to further their careers in agriculture.”
The first Prince’s Countryside Fund charity clay shoot has been arranged for Wednesday 15th May at West Wycombe Estate, High Wycombe. If you would like to enter a team, to raises funds for the PCF and meet fellow Countryside supporters like Phil Vickery please contact Clare Crookenden Clare.Crookenden@bitc.org.uk
